Duckweeds are the smallest, fastest growing and simplest of flowering plants, representing a high-impact biofuel feedstock that is ripe for exploitation. Some of the current uses of Lemnaceae are a testimony to its scientific, commercial and biomass utility, such as basic research and evolutionary model system, toxicity testing organism, biotech protein factories, wastewater remediation, high protein animal feed, and carbon cycling.
Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute will sequence duckweed in their 2009 Community Sequencing Project, and has enlisted the efforts of Rutgers researchers for "Genome sequencing of the duckweed Spirodela polyrhiza: a biofuels, bioremediation and carbon cycling crop," PI Dr. Todd P. Michael (Waksman Institute of Microbiology). For the official announcement, see this site.
